Darth Malora Lightsaber in Star Wars Legends
The Darth Malora lightsaber is a red-bladed Sith lightsaber. The lightsaber hilt is mostly metallic silver in color. A series of fin-like claws encircle the emitter section. A tooth or tooth-like piece caps off the end of the lightsaber.
In her early years on the Sith homeworld, Korriban, Marlora serves as the Sith Apprentice of Lord Renning. The Dark Council provides Lord Renning many resources to advance Sith knowledge of the Force. Malora comes to believe that Renning’s experiments are a waste of time and resources. She tries to sabotage his research, but two Sith acolytes tip off Renning in advance. Furious, he unleashes Force lightning upon her. He dismisses her from her apprenticeship with him. Renning ultimately dies during the Korriban Incursion, a battle during the Galactic War.
Malora eventually ascends to the rank of Dark Lord of the Sith, taking on title Darth. Darth Malora develops expertise as a scientist and is selected to join the Dark Council. She initially commands Imperial forces against the Republic, Jedi Order, and Eternal Alliance during the Battle of Ossus. When Darth Malgus unexpectly arrives on the planet, he takes command of Imperial forces.
Darth Malora attempts to attack Malgus, but fails. Following the botched attack, she is removed from the Dark Council. The Dark Council appoints Darth Savik in her place.
